Growing up, my family always took driving vacations. We would get in the car very early in the morning and go back to sleep. By the time we woke up, we were halfway to our destination and it was breakfast time. Dad always stopped at a pancake house along the highway. We were allowed to order whatever we wanted, as long as we ate whatever was on our plate. My brothers and I always ordered chocolate chip pancakes that were bigger than our heads and finished every bite.
I passed my love for pancakes along to my children. If I am ever at a loss for meal ideas, breakfast is always my default and pancakes are always at the top of the list.
Even before going gluten free, I have made pancakes from scratch with this recipe. When money was tight, I found that it was cheaper to use what I already had in my pantry and we just liked the taste better. We have added chocolate chips, berries and pecans to the batter and they are all delicious.
Chocolate Chip pancakes are perfect for rainy or sunny days, happy or sad days. We have never found a day where pancakes didn’t make everyone just a little bit happier.
